americans. the fbi has been telling us in the past couple days, their investigation is underway and apparently still underway outside of libya. tensions and security situation is still too difficult in there to put a full team of fbi investigators on the ground according to reports. they're closed about this. what we can confirm. u.s. navy destroyers in the air and aerial drones and they're doing everything they can to try to begin this investigation. what is a very difficult and dangerous landscape. back to you. >> alisyn: greg palkot. thank you so much for that update. let's talk about the military situation in terms of what the security was in the consulate in benghazi. whether or not it was accurate. and catherine herridge has published an article in foxnews.com where she outlined all of the attacks leading up to tuesday at that should have been red flags and meant we were beefing up our security on september 11th. >> as a panoply of attacks, june 6th an ied thrown at the perimeter of the consulate in benghazi. on the 11th the british motorcade came under attack by an rpg. o
. >> the fbi is, has the lead in this investigation. the information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack, that what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. megyn: we are now awaiting a briefing from the state department on the anti-american protests rocking the middle east and the muslim world. you can bet this question will come up, but what will the state department say? it is now refusing all questions about what happened in libya because it claims an fbi investigation is underway, and it says you have to refer your questions to the justice department, but they won't talk to you either. we are going to have what we can learn from that briefing and catherine herridge whose reporting this is with more of this exclusive just ahead right here. >>> we are also getting new video, riots raging across the globe today, and as the anti-american protests spread beyond north africa and the middle east, it is posing a seriou
have any information as to whether or not the fbi is on the ground in benghazi, libya, going through the consulate or not? >> it is not clear they're on the ground today, i don't know the answer to that. i can tell you a week after the incident they were not on the ground in benghazi. they were in neighboring tripoli. they were not where the crime scene was. that is deeply troubling fact. how can they not investigate the incident if they're not occurring the crime scene. that usually has to occur right after the event. i would hope they're there now. bill: what does that suggest if they are not? >> i don't know how you can do a full investigation if you can't be there to secure evidence at the scene and to be right where the event occurred to ask questions. my background as a prosecutor and i can tell you the first thing that you need to do is right at the beginning of the event you have to get the accounts, you've got to make sure the evidence is secure. the fact they haven't been there is deeply troubling. bill: could it be it is still not safe? >> well it could be that that sugges
, i know you have a lot of sources at the fbi and other agencies like that. what can you tell us? >> reporter: i apologize for being out of breath. i was walking down fifth avenue, which is close to our studios and i heard a -- a jet -- perhaps a 737 or a small air bus, flying low, unusually low over fifth avenue, make egg right. i am not going to say -- i don't know -- i don't have any reports on what type of plane hit the world trade center. but people looked up and it made a right toward the building. >> nice and orderly, nice and orderly. >> it is a tragedy. it is abhorrent. it is disgusting. bru, you know -- but, i am wondering, are these pilots terrorists themselves? are there terrorists in the cockpit who are holding guns to a pilot's head? did they -- >> i can't imagine -- >> you can speculate completely about how this happens because, obviously, it takes a lot of training and expertise to fly a complicated, sophisticated aircraft, whether it's a boeing 737 or a smaller air bus, these are not cessnas or pipers. have you to raise the wonder and the possibility of the type

are telling fox news, that a hundred militants took part in that assault last week. fbi agents are on the ground and looking into whether in fact the attack was an inside job. national security correspondent jennifer griffin's all over this, live in washington with more, hi, jen. >> hi, jamie, well, a fbi team assigned to investigate the murder of u.s. ambassador chris stevens is looking into whether the group of about a hundred attackers armed with rocket propelled grenades had inside help from the private security contractors who the state department had hired to guard inside the benghazi consulate. senator susan collins asked the director of the international counterterrorism center matthew olson this very question at a committee hearing this week. the state department hired blue mountain group, a private security group out of wales to vet and hire local guards for the consulates and the contract worth nearly half a million dollars. indications that the local guards may have been chasing the conflict were revealed by an online post by sean smith, and went on a gaming site. a
the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfolded. take a listen. >> london, how serious is
in situation. both pittsburgh and fbi s.w.a.t. teams are on the scene of a hostage situation taking place on the 16th floor of a downtown highway. the cw brightsman company we understand is the setting for all of this. an ex-military man we're told walked into that office this morning where apparently he used to work. asked for one individual in particular and has now taken hostages. it is not absolutely clear that the one person that he named is the person who is being held hostage. there might be as many as two hostages. we're told no shots have been fired. unknown weaponry involved and police say they have a visual wall on the suspect the they know who he is. they have brought his mother to the building to help deal with negotiations but so far the hostage situation continues in downtown pittsburgh on the 16th floor of a high-rise. no shots fired so far. we'll keep you updated as the hour rolls along. >> we will. brand new stories and more breaking news. jon: good to see you, arthel the white house is it calling the assault in lib libya a terrorist attack. what is the political fallout
of a sting by the fbi. the lawyers calling the charges suspicious suggesting federal agents lured the teen into the plot. in court documents prosecutors said the teen was given several chances to walk away. >>> a french judge ruled today on prince william's and kate's request to stop the topless photos from being published once again. the pictures appeared in a french magazine called closure. it showed up in an irish magazine and italian magazine. the royal couple's lawyer says it is a grotesque invasion of privacy. they are asking the court the equivalent 13,000 dollars a day if they ignore that junction and 130,000 if the photos are sold. >> the family of the border patrol agent killed in fast and furious honoring their loved one today. agent perry's mothers and sisters expected to attend a border patrol station. the family has been raising money in his honor. three people have been arrested in the case. the acting world mourning the loss of a long time soap opera star. >> it is very nice to have children in the house again here. ask away. >> john ingle starred as edward quartermain for
by others that this was a preplanned or pre-meditated attack. there is an ongoing investigation the fbi is investigating and that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. >> fox news contributor john bolton is talking about the situation in libya. he responded to a report the administration may have received a warning about the attacks in advance. >> this is important information if it's true which means they failed to heed the warning and put the ambassador and three of the colleagues in a desperate security situation. this is the white house story unravelling right in front of itself. what they are trying to do is hide behind the fact that an fbi investigation is pending in libya. the idea that the administration has returned to terrorism as a criminal law matter rather than war is extraordinarily dispushidis -- disturbing. >> they were surprised that means one of two things either a massive intelligence failure or they believe the things were benign. >>> before you leave the house you need to get a first degree weather update with maria molina. >> we had a lot of sever
they have nothing knew to report that. and we're told the f.b.i. team to come in to investigate the killing remains here in tripoli. according to all reports they have not reached benghazi amidst new concerns in tampering with the crime scene in benghazi and new concerns that the bad guys might be getting away. this militia crackdown means that the militants, possible suspects are being forced out of their bases maybe to parts unknown. back to you. >> gregg: thank you very much. >>> now to pakistan where anti-american demonstrateders are taking to the streets yet again. the peaceful crowd chanting and holding signs reading down with america and israel. there were no reports of violence, but this comes after days of riots and dozens of people killed and clashes with police around the country. >> gregg: in nigeria, a bomber killing two people and injuring dozens more. his target was a mosque but a gate stopped him from actually causing more death and destruction. witnesses say the car bomber slammed his car into the fence and then detonated his explosives into the parking lot. they say the tw

. postponed when but the weather was killed . the prevous and cia and intelience director along with the fbi and he played it down, do you think that he was not opening up each meeting which is the latest on bin laden. >> steve: why he saluted the unsung heros who went in the raid to kill bin laden. >> brian: they did not depoif up his name first. >> steve: one other thing that was interesting. they shot kalid. the point man saw a head pop out and shot bin laden in the head. and the point person went up in bun bin's bed room rather than shoot him again grabbed the two women. the worry was belt bombs and might try to attack the seals. the point man grabbed them in bear hugs thinking if they are going to detonate he would absorb it and save the team. >> gretchen: the cia agent hundred percent right feisty and unvested in this. and when she saw the body of bin laden in the bag when they got back on the aircraft she wept. imagine someone who did this 24-7 and families who lost loved ones in the hands of osama bin laden much. it is it an amazing story. >> brian: we found out the jobs numbers and
that are on the ground in libya. there is one u.s. navy destroyer off of the coast and another coming there, too and f.b.i. agents and as well a stepped up drone surveillance. we are talking about a terror manhunt in libya. in addition to the motivator of that film made in the u.s., it could be a complex organization to take out u.s. officials with an al-qaida link. we are looking at the video we have seen coming from the al-qaida number one who is citing that the al-qaida number two was killed by the u.s. and called on action from the u.s.. a complex and fluid situation, back to you. >> gretchen: thank you. >> brian: how does the united states respond? former director of national intelience who worked in the worst situation . ambassador, welcome. what is our best next step first of course in libya? >> let mow say that chris stevens, we lost an exemptary diplomat. he was the kind of example of expeditionary diplomacy that characterized our hot spots . we will mourn his loss and miss him greatly. as far as the next step, we have to wait this situation out a bit and at least get past the friday prayers tomo
part in that assault last week. this as f.b.i. agents on the ground there are looking into whether the attack was an inside job. national security correspondent jennifer griffin reports from washington. >> f.b.i. team assigned to investigate the murder of chris stevens is looking into whether the group of about 100 attackers armed with rocket propelled grenades, had inside help from the private security contractors who the state department had hired to guard inside the benghazi consulate. senator susan collins asked the director of the national counterterrorism center, matthew olson, this very question at a committee hearing this week. the state department hired blue mountain group, a private security group out of wales, to vet and hire local guards for the consulate. the contract was worth nearly half a million dollars. indications that the local guards may have been casing the consulate were first revealed in an on-line post by sean smith, on a gaming web site where he went by the name vile rat. quote, assuming we don't die tonight, we saw one of our, quote, police, that guard th
in advance and likely carried out as part after joint operation between two groups, the fbi, looking into whether it was an inside job, and working now to find out just how much the terrorists really knew about our consulate and who was in there at the time of the hit. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. >> on the sunday talk shows ahead of the house intelligence committee saying the terrorists seemed to know more than the consulate. >> and there is some indication they may have known that the ambassador was there or in the area at the time of the attack, but 9/11 is probably more important to that equation than even the the be ambassador. >> as for the libyan security forces melted away when the attack unfolded, an intelligence source on the ground in libya telling that 100 militants attacked the consulate adding one thing for sure, the 17th brigade was nowhere to be found and the americans were left on their own in the assault on the stevens' compound and the evidence points to a joint oranges between the al-qaeda affiliate in north african and ansar al sharia. and
hoffa. one of the persistent questions. why is this shed and driveway? >> the f.b.i. has this case. of course, they have been searching for years for jimmy hoffa's body. it came up where somebody complained they saw or know of a body that was buried at that location. he gave a couple of names that were tied in with jimmy hoffa at the time when he disappeared. that was the reason for the search. either they had to search for a body or jimmy hoffa's body. that is the reason for this. >> heather: this location it's about 30 miles west of where he was last seen. you mentioned those names. they are associated with the house itself? >> i think they are. one of them -- i'm not sure if they are relatives or not. the person who made that allegation the f.b.i., i think those names were connected in some way. one of those names are probably the prime suspect of disappearance of jimmy hoffa. >> heather: what are investigators looking for in these soil samples. what do they hope to find? >> anything they can find. any kind of bone, body, dna anything to prove there is a body there. does the f.b
, like why hasn't the fbi been able to get in there. how is it that cnn can contaminate a crime scene and take crucial evidence? the fact that an fbi agent can't be in there yet is a crime in and of itself. this administration has a lot to answer for. they want the foreign policy to be the election policy and now it's front and center. >> eric: is the administration lying? is there a coverup? >> no, i don't think they are lying at all. i think their response is less than commanding. the first information you get from a crisis overseas is imperfect, wrong or it will change or a few days. it is not a question, that there were late to rolls release on friday afternoon, an update that, yes, this was a planned attack. but the defining issue is here the security of the compound. we know that the british ambassador, the united nations office and the red cross office in benghazi had been attacked recently, prior to the attack and the murder of our wonderful ambassador there. but the equivalent what have it costs to keep one member in afghanistan half a year is the protection we gave the consu
have been trying to gather the facts and did not want to get ahead of the f.b.i. investigation. >> shep: the polls are indicating that the president has taken a hit on foreign policy, ed. >> absolutely. he's doing better on the economy against mitt romney. but another poll shows his approval in terms of handling foreign policy, it's down to 49%. disapproval is up to 46%. that suggests a weakness there in part because of what's happened in the last week or so. and that's why the romney campaign is jumping on it. take a listen. >> the american people will judge him on the fact, are we more influential around the world and we are not. >> interesting, because before the argument about are you better off four years from now was about the economy. you see the romney campaign adjusting it to national security. their spokesman was the president has not only taken out key al-qaeda leaders, but point out they believe mitt romney was the one who jumped in and commented on all this violence a little too soon. >> shep: ed henry in coral gables. as mentioned, the secretary of state weighed in on this
on that coming up. >>> the fbi is set to launch a new system really straight out of a sigh inches fiction movie you've seen. we'll tell you what it is and how it could transform crime-fighting ahead jon: right now new information on some international stories we're watching. the afghan taliban says it will do everything in its power to kidnap or kill britain's prince harry. queen elizabeth's grandson arrived in afghanistan last week to fly attack helicopters. his tour is expected to last four months. >>> syria's state-run news agency reporting at least 30 people are dead and dozens wounded after a car bomb tore through the northern city of aleppo last sunday. the blast happened near two hospitals one reportedly used to treat government troops. >>> the u.s. government is stopping flights home for illegal mexican immigrants. it is said to be part of a move to save american taxpayers millions of dollars. since 2004 more than 125,000 mexican citizens have been flown back to their home country with your tax dollars paying the fare. jenna: major development in the "fast and furious" scandal today. me
a single fbi agent on the ground in benghazi. we're all looking toward that investigation because that's what we're told from the administration will provide more answers, the fbi investigation, if no one is on the ground what are we to make of that? >> i think you make a couple of things. why is anybody not on the ground? is it too dangerous for the fbi to go there? secondly if the administration says, hold your horses wait until we got full investigation and we find out there is no investigation, again, it is that drip, drip, drip. what did they know? when did they know it? why are they trying to cover it up and what is going on? it wasn't so unsafe in benghazi a cnn reporter went there several days ago and got the ambassador's personal diary. maybe somebody is there but not the united states fbi. jenna: we'll watch the continuing to develop story. kt, thanks for your insights. well have much more on the controversy over the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. top senators on the senate foreign relations committee are calling on secretary clinton to talk about cables. we'll talk t
